Welcome flood?

little drops of joy
in river of emotions;
is a flood welcome?

Translated to French by Claude Lopez-Ginisty. Thank you 🙂

Petites gouttes de joie
dans une rivière d’émotions;
une inondation est-elle bienvenue?


The poetic form involved here is a Senryu. Senryu is Japanese haikai form. It’s similar to the haiku, but the association here is with life and emotions, rather than nature. Like haiku, the form is 17 syllables or under, written usually in three lines.


Shared with Haiku Heights ~&~ Haiku My Heart.


(May 26th, 2012)

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
